Winter Tomatoes

It's never happened before. This year after chilly days and a fairly lackluster summer tomato harvest I still have two tomato plants hanging on producing vibrant clusters of bright red fruits. I generally shun winter tomatoes as mushy and flavorless. That may be true in grocery stores around the country, but the taut skinned jewels in our front yard are tasty and beautiful and ready to star in winter salads and sauces -- if I can keep from eating them on the way into the house.
February tomatoes from our front yard -- garden magic.
